The Chamasyan Sisters playing has been described as "Passionate and intelligent" (Tim Page) their programs "Scandalously beautiful" (Crozet Gazette) and “by far the best performance of my work” Mikhail Kokzhayev. The Chamasyans began performing together in their early years of their music education and after pursuing higher degrees in music, reunited in the United States in 2004. Since then, they have performed in various ensembles and as soloists but always return to playing together because of their innate fluency of expression, which is clear to audiences and critics alike. Without losing their individuality, the sisters create a singular musical language that sounds effortless regardless of musical style. The sisters performed in venues such as the Carnegie's Weill Hall in New York, the Kennedy Center, the Strathmore, the Barns of Wolf Trap, the Hylton Performing Arts Center and other distinguished venues across mid-Atlantic region. The sisters arrange and commission pieces for two violins and piano. They present unique programs embracing works from early Baroque music to Contemporary music and a special program showcasing music by Armenian composers. The recent commission came from Gloria Sussmann for composer Scott Solak to write a sonata for the Chamasyan sisters to perform for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. The sonata titled "Sonata di Gloria" was premiered in Reston, VA with tremendous success. The Chamasyans' debut CD was released in 2014 titled "From Armenia with Love" and is available on iTunes and Amazon.
